ODM party’s National Delegates Conference heads to Kasarani

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party delegates will today (Saturday) converge at Kasarani Indoor Gymnasium for the National Delegates Conference (NDC).

This is where Azimio la Umoja Coalition party is expected to be unveiled.

Speaking at the National Governing Council (NGC) meeting at the Bomas of Kenya on Friday, Suna MP Junet Mohamed termed the coalition as the next frontier for the August 9 general election adding that ODM and Jubilee would remain the founding members.

ODM and Jubilee planned their NGC and Delegates Conventions on the same dates, an indication that the alliance is a done deal.

A joint session slated for Saturday and a rally at the famous Kamukunji grounds in Nairobi on Sunday will be the culmination of the pact, setting the stage for countrywide rallies to drum up support for the coalition.

President Uhuru Kenyatta Wednesday declared the ODM leader as his preferred successor.

Last week Thursday, the ODM’s National Executive Committee (NEC) met in Nairobi where six resolutions were passed ahead of Saturday’s meeting.

The NEC resolved to ratify the former prime minister Raila Odinga as the party’s presidential candidate and also agreed that the party would formally join the Azimio la Umoja coalition.

They also resolved to postpone the election of the party’s national officials to sometime in 2023 and the committee also agreed to propose four methods of selecting flagbearers in the August 2022 polls, including consensus, direct nomination, delegates system and universal suffrage by members of the party.

The NEC also resolved to introduce the Disability League and the Council of County Coordinating Committee Chairs as organs of the party.

The proposals passed by the NEC will be presented  during the Saturday NDC for adoption by members of the party.
